Adapt GUI for high-resolution (HiDPI) screen on Ubuntu Linux

Postby aracapau » Fri Dec 30, 2016 4:31 pm

Hello,

I’m running YourKit Java Profiler 2016.02-b45 64-bit for the first time
on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (64-bit OpenJDK 1.8.0_111).

Technically everything works fine, except, unfortunately, that I can
hardly use the profiler GUI because everything is so tiny as to be
barely recognisable. My laptop has a high-resolution or ‘HiDPI’ screen
(it’s a Lenovo Yoga 900-13, resolution is 3200×1800).

I’ve had trouble before with software that wasn’t HiDPI-ready. Has
anyone managed to adapt the GUI for HiDPI on Ubuntu? Is there a flag for
this?

Thank you.

Hi,

Please ensure you use the Linux bundle: https://www.yourkit.com/download
It contains Oracle JRE which in general runs UI better than OpenJDK.

Is the problem mostly with icons or with the fonts too?

Unfortunately, there is no way to make icons larger in this release. It is possible to increase font size. To do this, add these lines to ~/.yjp/ui.ini

-Dyjp.font.name=Dialog
-Dyjp.font.size=20

where 20 is the font size - try to choose appropriate size for your system.

Best regards,
Anton

Hello Anton,

increasing the font size with -Dyjp.font.size=24 worked perfectly and
resolves this issue for me. The icons are still tiny but that is only a
cosmetic problem.

Thank you very much!
